Details:

Due to COVID-19, April was a record-breaking month for the Food Bank, distributing 7.68 million pounds of food to our community. This is the largest single-month distribution the Food Bank has recorded in its 40-year history. Volunteers will assist with packaging and sorting salvaged food. Food will then be distributed to relief centers and food pantries around the region to be distributed to families and individuals in need.

**All volunteers must be feeling well and be between the ages of 18-60 years old.
**All volunteers must wear closed toe shoes. If you have a mask, gloves, other protective gear, please wear that, too.
**In addition to signing up here on Activate Good, all volunteers must complete the online Food Bank confirmation and waiver via this link: https://fb.samaritan.com/custom/519/#/volunteer_registration

***Please complete the waiver prior to arrival. If you have already volunteered with the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina and you already have a volunteer account, then you do NOT need to complete that again.

**Please review**Regarding COVID-19 and volunteering at the Food Bank CENC
Current volunteer sessions are being capped at smaller numbers and volunteers are spread out at those stations. This is to best accommodate social distancing while still packing vital food resources, in accordance with guidelines around large groups. The Food Bank is also limiting volunteering to ages 18-60 at this time, to best protect vulnerable populations.

There is personal protection equipment available at the Food Bank, however if you have these on hand and can bring them, it would allow the Food Bank to conserve those resources. All volunteers must wear gloves. All surfaces are wiped down and sanitized before and after each volunteer session with wipes that contain at least 60% alcohol. The Food Bank has hired additional housekeeping staff to make this possible and has removed focal points like iPad sign in and the name tag station.

All volunteers must wash their hands upon entering the Food Bank, before starting a project.

If you are feeling sick, or displaying any symptoms of illness, please stay home.
